Roger W. Smith on George Daniels: Millennium and Anniversary | Expert Voices

Geneva | 5 November 2023

'There is no other watchmaker in the world who makes a watch that looks like Daniels'.'

Watches by George Daniels and Roger Smith are truly unique in their visionary philosophy, quality of craftsmanship, rarity and history. It is impossible not to mention Roger Smith when discussing George Daniels, as it is impossible not to mention Daniels when discussing Smith. Certainly, such has been the case with watches by both makers that have appeared on the market thus far.

The Millennium and the Anniversary bookend the collaboration between Roger Smith and George Daniels. In these two watches we gain an unprecedented insight into the relationship between master and apprentice, including the moment when the names Daniels and Smith sit – in once instance quite literally – beside one another as equals for the first time; both names bearing equal weight and equal significance in the creation of their first and last collaborations.

Both watches are on offer in the Important Watches: Part I sale taking place in Geneva on 5 November as part of Luxury Week.
